CFGA Conference, Nov. 14 and 15, 2018

November 14 - November 15

Welcome to the CFGA 2018 Conference:

Foundation Forage: Built from the Ground Up

Forage is Canada’s third largest crop, just behind canola and wheat, and has a direct economic value of $5.09 billion. It’s a critical part of our Canadian ecosystem and agricultural industry and the focus of the CFGA Conference, Nov. 14 and 15, 2018.

We’re putting together a line-up of top speakers who will talk, teach and share their expertise with you during their presentations on Nov. 14 and 15 – the core of the conference. Speakers will set the stage for you to plan, seed, feed, graze, harvest and evaluate your valuable forage and grassland. We’ll look at carbon capturing and data management, current protocols and how to meet future developments.

Earlier in the week, on Monday, Nov. 12, general managers from the forage organizations across the country will gather to help set the path for the national association, looking for ways to work together and strengthen the industry. On Tuesday, Nov. 13, conference attendees have the opportunity to hit the road for hands-on learning with the CFGA Pre-Conference Tour. We’ll take you to visit nearby leaders in the forage and grassland sector of Alberta and hear how they are finding success.

Also during the conference, CFGA will present its annual Leadership Award, honouring the sector’s influencers.

The export forage industry is an area of growth in Canada, and the sector will gather for meetings on Friday, Nov. 16.

Please check back often for updates to the program and speakers – and see you in Calgary, Nov. 14 and 15, 2018!
